Trainee & junior reporters
|Training leading to possible full-time role
Applications are invited for the editorial training scheme (news reporters and sub-editors) run by the Daily Mail, Mail on Sunday, MailOnline and Mail+.
We are looking for budding journalists with broad interests who want to work for Britain's most successful newspaper group.
Our trainees embark on a two-year long programme that involves intense training, assessment and on-the-job experience at regional daily newspapers.
The successful applicants will probably have an NCTJ qualification or post-grad in journalism and will have shown a commitment to journalism by writing or editing for their student newspaper/website and gained work experience in newsrooms. We want self-starters with a real interest in current affairs who can write and edit accurately and in style.
Previous graduates of the training scheme now hold senior positions at the Mail’s titles.
The courses start in September and October. There will be three weeks of intensive in-house training for reporters and four weeks for sub-editors, during which the trainees are introduced to Mail style. It is followed by four months' placement – on a regional daily paper, the Scottish Daily Mail in Glasgow or the Irish Daily Mail in Dublin - after which the trainees will join the Mail newsroom.
Trainees will be on the best journalism course in the business and paid a competitive salary while they train. Nearly all are offered staff jobs at the end.
To apply send a covering letter, your CV and the three best examples of your work to [email protected] by Friday March 29, 2024.
Please specify in the subject of the email whether your application is for a trainee sub-editor or news reporter. Interviews will be held in April.
Please mention HoldtheFrontPage when applying for this role. This advert will expire on Friday 29th March 2024.
